The Fashion Event of the Season at CAMH

On Thursday, May 23rd, the Community Centre at CAMH’s Queen Street site was transformed into a fashion runway as 25 CAMH clients strutted their stuff on the catwalk for the annual Suits Me Fine Fashion Show.

Suits Me Fine, a unique hospital boutique providing free clothing and personal items to CAMH clients for over 20 years, puts on the fashion show every year to celebrate the style and flair of its clients, many of whom face the daily challenges of limited financial resources.

“Many clients cannot afford new clothes so the boutique provides gently used clothing for job interviews and special events to hundreds of clients each year for free,” says CAMH Volunteer Coordinator, Norma MacDowell. “This show brings the CAMH community together.”

The theme of this year’s show was ‘Looking Back and Moving Forward’. Models paid homage to the rich history of CAMH by modeling period fashions ranging from the roaring 1920s through to today.

Wearing evening gowns, tailored suits and casual wear, the models rocked the runway to thunderous applause, beaming with pride and posing for photos. You can see a slide show from the event below.

To donate new or gently used clothing items to Suits Me Fine, please email norma.mcdowall@camh.ca for more information. Suits Me Fine is open Mondays and Wednesdays from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
